WORKSHOP / SUNDAY 5th MAY / 10:30-3:30PM
DRAGONFLIES – ALCOHOL INKS & METAL POWDERS
Dragonflies symbolise change, and reflect the world on their wings!
In this fun workshop you will be creating a scene with dragonflies on yupo paper, using Alcohol inks and metal powders to give those magnificent wings a luminescent quality.
Alcohol Inks are the new, easy-to-do creative trend. In this workshop, you will explore and create a painting that will attract even those who are not drawn to art. You will be guided through the process step by step via practical, hands on demonstrations. See how the colours disperse on yupo paper, experiment, and then be guided through the process of creating a beautiful large artwork to take home.
While Alcohol inks are said to be hard to control, you will paint this step by step with the teacher, who has devoted her time to learning techniques and mediums that can control these inks to some degree.
It’s almost a worldwide phenomenon that the dragonfly symbolises change, transformation, adaptability and self-realisation. Come and create the change in this dragonfly workshop!
